Four Score and Seventy-Five Years Ago

On this date in 1863, Abraham Lincoln delivered one of the most famous speeches in American history.

Despite its fame, many elements of what transpired that day at the dedication of the Gettysburg National Cemetery — including the exact text of the speech itself — remain unclear to even the most dedicated historical researcher. To know the truth, you would have had to have been there.

Be sure to dress for the occasion.

Blue and Gold and Gray

This week, I finally got my hands on the new Knight Models DC Universe Miniature Game: Multiverse Blue Beetle & Booster Gold two-pack figures, and they're pretty much as advertised.

Knight Models DC Universe Miniature Game Booster Gold

I ordered them from GameNerdz.com.

As you can see, the miniatures (34mm high) are sold unpainted and unassembled, so you'll need to do a little work to get them display (or play) ready. For example, my Beetle fit poorly in his stand, and my Booster had some residual resin flash that required cutting away with an xacto blade. (You can see the white line under his outstretched arm.) Your mileage may vary.

If I do ever get around to painting them — and they turn out well — I'll be sure to let you know how that goes. (The list of things I say I'm going to get around to only gets longer and longer. Sigh.)

From Here to Excelsior

I first re-published the following image from Ross Pearsall's incomparable Super-Team Family Presents... blog back in 2017, but it's even more appropriate today.

Super-Team Family Presents #1990

Lee has oft been accused of seeking the limelight at the expense of others, a personality flaw that should be painfully familiar to Booster Gold fans. Whatever faults he might have had, Lee was a master storyteller and promoter, and I shudder to think of what American superhero comics might now be if not for his contributions to the medium. Thanks, Stan.
